. mr. president, the president should ask the secretary of health and human services kathleen sebelius to resign her position because of the disastrous rollout of obamacare. taxpayers have spent $400 million to create exchanges, but after three and one half years still don't work. as a result, the white house had to announce last night that the key enforcement mechanism to their individual mandate, a $95 fine that increases every year, will be waived until the end of march of next year. that's fine for those currently without insurance. but for the millions being forced into the exchanges and losing their current insurance, there's no relief. just higher prices. a likely lapse in insurance coverage. a broken web site. and broken promises. we already know of 1.5 million americans are losing their policies because starting january 1, many insurance policies that they now have will not be legal under obamacare and because the exchange will not be working, they won't be able to choose another policy. this chart gives an example of what's going on. just in three states: california, florida
